Uplodaing Running Config Question

Having some challenges uploading Running-config to router.

Router: 871w with VPN

I have tried uploading via console and SDM. The file was saved with SDM.

What do I need to leave out to make the process work (using SDM and/or console).

Not sure how are you performing this however, would like to know if you are using a procedure similar to:

If so, are you getting any errors or is it just not doing anything at a certain point.

Re: Uplodaing Running Config Question

Thanks for the reply.

I will review the link.

How I was trying to upload was:

Method A) Using SDM, under Additional Tasks, there's a configuration section where you can upload or merge running config. Since this did not work - I assumed it had errors.

Method B) Logged into Console using Console cable and Hyper Terminal. I when into config t and selected File > Send Text file.

It looked as if I was getting error messages with secret password and crypto items.... might be anything that was encrypted? I thought this method would work.
